Rosh Hodesh and Shevet Achim meet in single-gender, single-grade gatherings made up of 8–12 teens in 8th grade or higher. The groups meet for two hours each month during the academic year in safe, fun, and supportive spaces to engage in meaningful conversations—where a trained adult mentor helps teens consider Jewish values as they explore the issues they care about most, such as relationships, social pressures, and stress.
Moving Traditions has learned that when the Jewish community takes this approach to teen engagement, it has the power to move our teens, our communities, and Judaism forward.
Moving Traditions partners with almost 200 Jewish institutions of all affiliations to address the needs of adolescent girls and boys in their communities. These partners include synagogues, JCCs, and summer camps.
Now, through Moving Traditions’ new Community Groups in Denver, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia*, we are providing families the opportunity for their teens to engage directly with our programming.
*Philadelphia Community Groups are now full. Please contact Sarah Fox for more information.
